Nikon D5600 DSLR Preview


Nikon has a new affordable mid-range DLSR for 2017. Announced at CES, the D5600 DSLR is a lightweight, compact, and rugged DSLR with a 24.2MP APS-C CMOS image sensor that, when paired with Nikon's EXPEED 4 image processor, can capture 5fps of still images or Full 1080/60p HD videos. The DSLR's class-leading 39-point AutoFocus system will help you track fast moving objects, while the ISO range 100-25,600 provide more capability in lower lighting conditions.

The D5600 also boasts Wi-Fi + BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) connectivity that allows the DSLR to pair with Nikon SnapBridge equipped mobile devices for sharing files and/or remote controlling. Full manual controls, special effects modes, and Time-Lapse capability round out a package that will push photographers looking to grow and push their skill-set.
